1861 (28 March) Lady Selina Inglis by Camille Silvy

Paul Frecker has the better biographic sketch of Julia Selina Thesiger here. Her husband distinguished himself during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, receiving a Knighthood for his action.

From Paul Frecker; I removed the sepia tone and sharpened the image somewhat.

Lady Inglis wears a crinoline dress with pelisse bodice and puffed banana sleeves in this 1861 Silvy photo.
